DC Super Heroes 6" Series 8 Clayface

DC Comics: Tom - 2007.10.12

Clayface reminds me most of his appearance in Batman: The Animated Series. Whether or not thatís a bad thing is up to you. He looks large and imposing though, which is dead on. His shoulders are also slightly slanted, as in a swagger. The large grin, deep set yellow eyes, and hands ready to grab are the perfect look for a battle ready villain.

Thereís actually a lot of texture on this figure. The upper torso is a little softer plastic than usual for the torso. But the arms are the real attraction. The arms are covered in a very soft plastic that bends with the arms. His arms not only look, but feel as if theyíre not completely solid. The softness of the plastic, along with the many folds of the sculpt, are beyond my expectations of Mattelís ability to recreate a man made of clay.

Clayface is large, much larger than the average 6Ē action figure. The joints are hidden well, mostly because of the folds. Heís fairly well proportioned, for a man made of clay. His arms are a bit long, but it gives the look of dripping clay.

Overall, Clayface looks great on display with other figures, or fighting batman. He may look more like mud than clay, but itís clear just from looking at this figure what Clayface can do, and how powerful he is. Heís one of the best looking DC Superheroes made yet.

Clayface has a waist swivel, ball jointed waist, ball jointed knees, and ball jointed feet. The real amazing thing is the arms though. Underneath the soft plastic is a wire or plastic frame that gives shape to the arms. This means that when the arm is bent, it stays bent around the frame. There are no joints visible, but the arms can be posed like any other action figure. Despite his size, his upper body can get a full range of motion. The only motion problems are in the legs, where Clayface has the usual pitfalls of ball jointed knees and ankles.

Clayface has some balance issues in more dynamic poses. The main problem isnít that heís top heavy, itís that his feet canít stay flat because of the ball joints. He can use his hands for balance when attacking other figures though, as I tried to show in some of the pictures. He does have a lot of great poses, but I think itís the arms that really make this figure look as good as it does. Overall, he looks great, and goes very well in a collection or by himself.

Final Judgment: 8
Clayface is an all around great figure. The only real problems are with the legs, and there are plenty of poses to get around them. The arms in particular are unique and give me hope about the quality of Mattelís new line. Overall, Clayface is definitely a figure to track down for anyone planning on collecting DC figures.

When I don't display my figures on the shelf I keep them individually in ziploc bags to decrease dust and keep them with any/all accessories. Well, yesterday with Clayface he stuck to the bag a little bit, I don't think it did any visible damage but I now that I won't be storing him in ... read more
